" A Fantastic Book! Dr. Stephens' book "Winning Fights" deals with the timelesss twelve principles needed for victory in any conflict" Andrew Zerling, Martial artist & author "Sumo for Mixed Martial Arts".
"Enjoy 'Winning Fights', and remember that fighting, while sometimes unavoidable, should be the last rather than the first thing we do in a confrontation." Wally Simpson, Martial Artist - Chinese Medicine Practitioner
Years ago when I was preparing for my 3rd Degree Black Belt - I was told to study the Dim Mak as I could appreciate it even more as a medical pratitioner. For over a year I emersed myself in this fascinating ancient art that has both healing elements such as Acupunture & Qigong - but also deadly elements such as the Dim Mak commonly referred to as the Death Touch. In Chinese Medicine you must know about both healing & destructive elements. You can't learn to destroy unless you first know to heal in this view.
When writing "Winning Fights" - I corresponded with Master Wally Simpson. He co-authored The Encyclopedia of Dim-Mak and practices Chinese Medicine in Australia. His text was invaluable when I studied the background of Dim Mak. He is a great guy & agreed to provide a review for my book. His review was actually longer than the publishers included as he is passionate about Chinese Healing Arts.
"In 'Winning Fights', Dr. Phillip Stephens organizes wisdom both ancient and modern into a set of practical principles for approaching and prevailing in a fight, whether in or out of the ring." Doug Merlino, author of Beast: Blood, Struggle & Dreams at the Heart of Mixed Martial Arts

"It's cool to see in print the principles you lived by for so many years!" Dale "Sunshine" Frye - Former United States Lightweight Kickboxing Champion - Two time World Kickboxing Champion - Movie & TV Stuntman
Thanks to UFC World Champion Amanda Nunes for her winning drive that landed her a spot in my book, "Winning Fights", just released by the publisher this week. Amanda beat Ronda Rousey for the World Championship. She is a great athelete & a kind individual.
We met in Charlotte just before my book release where she met my sons. I've never seen her complain about the constant flow of fans surrounding her each time she attends an event. She's a great example of a winning athelete with great internal drive.
"Dr. Stephens's book outlines some key concepts that would serve as a good base of educating onself to the path of not just becoming a warrior but a warrior of wisdom." - Doug Marcaida, Judge - The History Channel's Forged in Fire.
"I've had a lot of fights in my life, and quite a few of them were with men that are world renowned - Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundrgren, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Hulk Hogan to name a few - and I'd like to state for the record, here and now, that I have never won a single fight.
I am a Hollywood Stuntman...
I've never been able to explain to people the mental-toughness side of my job until I read Dr. Phillip Stephens's book, Winning Fights."
-Jeff Jensen, member Stuntman's Association of Motion Pictures, Directors Guild of America, Screen Actors Guild, The Actor's Studio: Writer/Director Unit, Hollywood Stuntman's Hall of Fame.
